(b 1914 )

Hector Ayala was born on 11th April 1914 in Concordia, in the Province of Entre Rios, Argentina. He began his career as a guitarist in Buenos Aires and in 1936 he made his début with the guitarist Roberto Grela, accompanying various tango and folk-singers of the time. Later, he joined the so-called Escuadrones de Guitarra (Guitar Squadrons), groups of thirty to forty guitarists brought together and directed by Abel Fleury. In the 1950s he engaged in intense activity in radio in Buenos Aires and joined a tango quartet directed by Aníbal Troillo, one of the great revolutionary interpreters of the tango genre. As a composer Hector Ayala wrote numerous works for guitar of national inspiration and a series of didactic methods for teaching the instrument. He died in Buenos Aires on 12th March 1990.
